There Is Another Way: Reflections from Israeli and Palestinian Members of Combatants for Peace

Combatants for Peace is a group of Palestinians and Israelis who have taken an active part in the cycle of violence in their region: Israeli soldiers serving in the IDF and Palestinians as combatants fighting to free their country, Palestine, from Israeli occupation. Working at the local level in both communities, Combatants for Peace believes that the conflict cannot be resolved, through military means, by either of the parties.

Please join NIMEP and the Institute of Global Leadership in their first series of speakers led by Combatants for Peace.
